HOW TO SECURE FRAGILE ITEMS WHEN MOVING TO ANOTHER APARTMENT

The idea of moving to another apartment sounds exciting when you’re to live in an amazingly constructed apartment in one of Dubai’s top locations, isn’t that? But what about those fragile items that need extra care on your part to be delivered safely from the old address to the new one? Being the providers of Packing and Moving Services in Dubai, we are aware of the irritation that majority of our customers face when packing vulnerable items including mirrors, antiques, painting and other form of fine art that make their place look classy. So we decided to give all those movers few useful packing advices that intend to take those precious items with you and looking for safe ways to pack them up correctly.

If you don’t want to feel disappointed from the packing and moving services in Dubai then you need to ensure certain things while you pack everything up that is vulnerable to jerks and shakes during the transition phase. So here’s how you may pack things smartly to deal with all the unfavorable situations and find your fragile items in one piece at the new address when the movers in Dubai complete their job.

  • When it comes to packing certain items in your valuables including mirrors, art pieces and paintings you need to understand that they require special packing techniques instead of putting them in one big carton box. Nope! You don’t need to un-mount the frame to pack them as a large telescope box would do the job. You may ask the providers of packing and moving services in Dubai to arrange that special packing material or get it from the nearest hardware store.
  • Packing up your artworks/painting? Hold on before you cover them up in that bubble wrap, you need something more relevant to maintain the color scheme of that artwork. Being the providers of packing and moving services in Dubai, we always ask our customers to use glassine paper to cover the front side of paintings that preserve the colors when in contact with the carton box’s inner surface. The providers might provide you glassine paper or else you may get it from art supply store near you in Dubai.
  • When you’re done covering the surface of your painting with glassine paper and arranging for large telescope boxes to cover the items securely, it’s time to put out that bubble wrap. Now cover the whole item with at least two times with a bubble wrap paper to ensure that each side is covered satisfactorily before you start tapping the item.
  • When taping the item, don’t repeat the same mistake that you did last time when packing fragile items for a move. As the providers of packing and moving services in Dubai, we always suggest our customers to tape at least two times the whole item after wrapping it in bubble wrap paper to make sure that it is securely satisfactorily and can bear the unfavorable parts of the transition journey.

If you feel that there is something missing in your packing approach, you may always ask your moving supervisor for further suggestions with respect to the packing of your items.

MOVING OUT? NEVER IGNORE THESE MOVING RITUALS FOR A SUCCESSFUL MOVE

When you have to change the apartment too often then you have to act smart especially while residing in a city like Dubai. Changing apartments is never easy when it comes to packing up all the items that you’ve arranged over the period of your stay and this is also very disturbing activity. Being one of the leading providers of Moving Companies in Dubai, we have helped different people in executing their move by reducing the challenges. So here are some useful tips that would help you in organizing everything from planning to the moving day when you plan to change your address in Dubai.

USE FREE BOXES

As one of the leading moving companies in Dubai, we understand the pain when you have to spend again and again on packing boxes that increase your expenses while securing the items. If you’re on a budget then do not spend money on packing boxes and search for the shops that could provide free carton boxes. While selecting the boxes just, make sure that their condition is not as meager as they would tear off during the transition phase. Ensure that the boxes which you intend to use for securing the items are sturdy enough to bear different pressures during the transition phase.

USE PLASTIC WRAPS

During the packing phase of your move, the most irritating part is the clothes packing. The process not only takes time but also consumes your energy while you put the clothes out of cupboard, pack then one by one and again put then in the case. Being one of the leading moving companies in Dubai, we ask people to use plastic wraps without removing the hangers. This would not cost you much and also save you enough time to manage your move wisely. Just roll up the clothes after covering in the plastic wraps and you’re all good to focus on other part of your move.

LABEL SMARTLY

The most difficult part is to remember each carton box that contains something but you have no idea the next day after moving into the new apartment. As the providers of packing and moving services in Dubai, we suggest our customers to use colors that would help them remember the box types. There are different items that you use in your household and colors can come handy when you have to segregate each item according to the usage.

TRY VERTICAL PACKING

Don’t use too many carton boxes as it would increase your time and expenses. We suggest our valued customers to pack smartly when securing the fragile items like plates, forks and other kitchen utensils. Instead of putting them flat in the box, try packing them vertically to save more space for other items. You’d be using limited packing boxes by following this trick instead of using multiple carton boxes.

USE BUBBLE WRAPS

According to our experience as one of the leading moving companies in Dubai, packing electronics is one of the biggest challenges of every customer. We suggest securing the precious electronic items like plasma or oven with bubble wraps that would protect them from jerks and jolts during the transitions and also save the items from getting scratched.

ARE YOU SURE YOU HIRED A PROFESSIONAL MOVING COMPANY IN DUBAI (READ THIS!)

Changing addresses and moving frequently within the city is quite common in this Emirate but finding one real professional Moving Company in Dubai is as hard as locating a needle in sea. You search for the moving companies in Dubai and thousands of companies appear on your laptop/mobile screen claiming to be the right choice for your move and you have to risk your time, money and important stuff by choosing one of them. Any guesses how you can choose the right one or if it is the wrong company that you’ve chosen for your move? Read on to discover if you’ve chosen a professional moving company in Dubai or making a mistake by choosing the unprofessional packers and movers.

EXCUSES, EXCUSES & EXCUSES

Today companies have many ways to market their ‘positive’ side and convince the end customer of their unseen professionalism standards but you feel disappointed after finding them all wrong when it comes to practical. Don’t get caught in their impressive examples of past examples unless you meet someone from their staff as this is where you can judge their work standards through the behavior of that guy (or girl maybe). Whether you’re in conversation of hiring a moving company in Dubai or asked the representative for initial inspection of your move, act attentively and see how committed they are towards their work. If the representative is constantly making excuses instead of proposing a solution to your problems then surely it is a signal of not choosing them.

CARELESSNESS AT WORK

As you know that Dubai is a place with diversity in terms of citizens that belong to different countries and hold a dissimilar temperament. Some are dedicated towards their work then others behave carelessly when performing their duties. But as you’re paying a moving company in Dubai to keep your items secure throughout the process, you won’t want to work with a careless moving crew right? A professional moving company in Dubai values the comfort of its customer and trains the staff to keep the process smooth and uninterrupted. But if you pay in full and find the staff careless with your stuff, you’ve chosen wrong guys and you need to stop the process right there before experiencing any loss.

‘NOT MY TASK’ ATTITUDE

The moving crew always works in supervision of a senior representative and it is important that this guy should show professionalism and dedication in his behavior. Suppose, you’re working with a moving company in Dubai whose moving crew has a supervisor who is not professional and holds a negative element in his behavior. This would affect your move because whenever you ask the crew to do something required for a safe transition of your items, the supervisor avoids it stating ‘this doesn’t fall in my duties.’ The supervisors are appointed to listen and guide you and arrange for the required items to make the move successful now if that guys goes rogue against his duties then his subordinates would surely follow him and ruin your move. That’s a sign that you’ve chosen a wrong moving company in Dubai and your move is at risk of bringing bad news at any point of the procedure.

4 REASONS YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOUR PACKING METHODS

Are you moving to a new address or just got your packed furniture by that professional moving company in Dubai and found few broken items? Or it might be you mixed the boxes and blaming the Packers and Movers that you hired? It’s no use to blame the company when you are repeatedly making the same packing mistake that costs you in terms of some financial (or emotional) loss every time you shift the residence (or the shop). So we thought to put together some common mistakes people make during the packing process and experience problems later on.

REDUCE STRESS

Can you guess when your moving journey becomes a nightmare and how you may fix it instead of blaming the moving company in Dubai that you hired (or thinking to hire)? The whole process becomes a torture when you keep on postponing the packing phase of your furniture and always find excuses for not allocating sufficient time. This results in discomfort when the moving date arrives and you have no idea what to do first and what to pack last. The rule of thumb is that you should start packing process at least 3 weeks before the moving date. You may go slow initially and pick the pace with each passing day and keep your blood pressure normal that goes high when you don’t pack and blame the moving company in Dubai for making the process complex.

PACK WISELY

Unlike you, there are some people that have mastered the art of packing and keeping the moving a relaxed journey. Can you guess that what do they do to keep the whole process as simple as waking up and going to their new place without encountering any difficulty? They prioritize each set of item when it comes to packing and this is what keeps them away from the confusion of last minute packing and accusing the packers and movers after they move into their new place. For instance, if you’re thinking to start packing then start with the items that you require the least on routine basis and pack the rest in that manner.

INCREASE SECURITY

You might have heard that old saying about the eggs and basket and that beautifully applies here when you roll up your sleeves to pack your stuff. Always start with segregating fragile items from other items that can bear shakes and weight during the transition process. Because if you put everything in big boxes just to save boxes or due to time shortage, you’re bound to find some broken items after shifting into your new place. If you can’t find more packing boxes, ask the moving company in Dubai to arrange them for you and make best use of them to keep the valuables secure during the moving phase.

STAY ORGANIZED

A common mistake that people, with no previous packing experience, make is not labeling each packing box. If you rely on your memory for recognizing the packing boxes and the kind of items they contain, you’re just increasing your problems and nothing else. Label each packing box and keep a list with you to keep the process easy and less hassle free instead of doubting the work standards of the moving company in Dubai.

5 REASONS YOU’RE NOT HAPPY WITH YOUR STORAGE SERVICE PROVIDER

The need of storing excessive amount of furniture rises frequently for the residents of UAE due to different reasons. And life is paradise if you could find the best Storage Company in Dubai that not only offers multiple storage solutions for your needs but also accommodates you with additional benefits. There are so many storage and moving companies that claim to be professional but fail to provide that elite class experience. So here are few signs that would help you identify if you’re happy with your storage company in Dubai or it’s time to change the service and secure your furniture.

FLUCTUATING PRICES

When you use a service, you expect them to stay loyal with you from start till the end of the service duration. But what if the storage company in Dubai (that you’re in contract with) changes its price structure quite often? That behavior breaks your confidence on the credibility of that company that claims to be a professional service provider. Suppose, you receive an email regarding updated payment plans from your storage company every 2 months then you’re in real trouble in terms of financial matters. This attitude might suit them but surely disturb your yearly budget that you’ve allocated to bear the storage expenses for your valuables.

UNHYGIENIC FACILITY

So tell me, what do you seek in an ideal Storage Company in Dubai that claims to take care of your precious items – cleanliness, right? Suppose, your company doesn’t care about the cleanliness in their storage facility that eventually makes your precious items dirty with a mild layer of dust. This can even reduce the resale value of your fixture that you wouldn’t want to experience right? If you’re experiencing such situation from your storage company, you need to change it ASAP.

LOOPS IN SECURITY

You pay a monthly subscription to your storage company with a hope that your sofas, suitcases (or anything that you put into that unit) will be secure with them for the specified duration. What if they charge you full but fail to provide a foolproof security experience? Would you continue doing business with them or change the storage company right away? Make a wise choice and secure your precious items and fixtures right away.

PEST INFESTATION

Pest infestation is a common threat to your fixture when you’re living in a city like Dubai. And the storage company, that claims to be a professional, should not neglect this aspect of security of your furniture. A reason for not feeling happy with your current storage company in Dubai is that it fails to eradicate the pest infestation issue and you see mice running in and out of your furniture every time you visit the unit.

NO CLIMATE CONTROL

Apart from pest infestation, there’s another serious issue that you expect your storage company in Dubai to handle very wisely – climate change. If you’ve put weather sensitive items in the unit then you need to double check if your current storage company in Dubai is offering climate control feature in their facility or your furniture is at a risk of being ruined.

4 TIPS FOR MOVING WITH OLD PEOPLE IN DUBAI

Relocating to some other country is tough but when you have a broken communication bridge with one of your parents, it may get worse. Your intentions were to give your mom or dad a better life but they are reluctant to stay in home country away from you. So how’d you convince them to cooperate with you in making a successful relocation from your hometown to Dubai – a place of opportunity? Being the providers of Local and International Relocations in Dubai, we have few tips for you to move with old people without losing the peace of mind of your family.

TALK TO THEM

If we look at the patterns of issues a person may face in an international relocation is when there is a communication gap between the family members. If your parents show discontentment about the relocation plans then it is most probably that they were not briefed about the reasons for this move. As the providers of local and international relocations, we always suggest our valued customers to take time and discuss with family members (including parents) about the relocation before making any final decision. When you give an impression that their suggestions hold value for you, they automatically feel related to you and your visions.

ASK THEIR OPINION

Suppose, you accepted the company proposal, booked an apartment in Dubai’s top residential area, booked tickets but on the last minute one of the senior authorities revolt against your decision. This situation sounds very problematic for a successful execution of your relocation but gives few lessons. Don’t just make this big decision an announcement but involve every house member in it. Ask your parents about their preferences when choosing a new apartment, location or anything that your relocation involves. You can keep melodrama and emotional disturbance at bay when you take opinions of your mom or dad.

KEEP THEM BUSY

You’re young, smart and responsible but it doesn’t mean that you need to do everything all by yourself. Don’t forget it is your parents that raised and shaped you in a successful person that you’re today. As the leading providers of local and international relocations, we suggest you to utilize their experience in sorting things instead of taking everything on your shoulders. When your parents involve in an activity, like relocating to another place, they show positive attitude about the decision instead of showing any negative feeling for leaving the hometown.

RECREATE THE HOMELIKE FEELING

Settling down into a new place requires time and you should not forget that they spent a large amount of their lifetime living in that place back in the home country. So give them time to befriend with this new residence, the neighborhood and the city. In our opinion as a leading provider of local and international relocations, one way of reducing the homesick feeling is to decorate your new apartment a bit like the old one so they could relate with this new place. And another way is to help your parents in making new friends as Dubai offers a multi-cultural society so you’d find people originating from your hometown for sure.
